Ferry stop: implementing consultation results


autor: Sylwia Szparkowska


We are pleased to present some photos and the evaluation report of the intervention into the public space in Hola Prystan in 2015.

After a wide consultation process including consultation e-tools (www.gopriplus.org) , on-line voting, charrette and professional architectural workshops (+48 Architecture, and Czech architects Vladimir Balda ana Jiri Zid).

The construction is fully accessible for people with disabilities, mothers, elders. Provides free of charge internet (thanks to cooperation with the city hall of Hola Prystan), the eco-friendly innovative technologies has been implemented (LED, solar panels, wood).

The ferry stop has the function of a meeting place, used by different groups (youngsters, elders). The architectural challenge was to add a construction with public function to the Dniepro River Bank, the Nabierezhna in HP, with its plural recreation and representative existing constructions: different monuments, installations, public places created in different historical times with different purposes.

The most important conclusions after the project implementation: the Ukrainian society, even in small towns, have a very positive attitude and easily accepts modern architecture in the public space – which was a kind surprising for all the people engaged in the architectural process. Second: the small societies are very open to any consultation process, especially when there is a chance to convert it into a tangible intervention / solving the bothering problems. Please find attached the report evaluating the implemented methods of consultations (EN and PL versions).

The project was co-financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland (within the Polish Aid Program 2015) and the Visegrad Fund.

We worked in a wide partnership: Europeum Institute from Czech Republic, Pedal Consulting  (Slovakia), ICDT (Hungary), the architects: +48 Design Group (PL), Jiri Zid and Vladimir Balda (CZ), and Ukrainian partners Regional Development Center Top-Kaya and Hola Prystan city hall.
